I've been saying exactly all that for months but have been ridiculed.


Don't think anyone has ridiculed you. Richards is a fine player, but also 3 years older

GWL depends what you mean 'that good'. Who are you comparing to? He has just turned 19, the leading assist maker in the division, scored 4 goals as well. How many 18/19 year olds are even playing regularly, and here is one who is not only playing each week but being a difference maker, and winning us games.

Laurent has definitely been a major factor in our improvement this season. Mentioned before but I'm almost slightly annoyed we didnt make sure we got him this time last season when we were in for him.

Not sure you were ridiculed as such, just disagreeing on taking 8m for him.

then you probably need to take a long look at yourself.

Mirror reporting Liverpool interested in Olise today as well.

I'm sorry Ian made you feel that way, but remember that you are in control of your emotions. I believe you can rise above Ian's dry use of the English language. Hope you feel better soon hun xo

If I know Ian like I think I know Ian, and I think I know Ian, he'll feel absolutely dreadful that he made you feel ridiculed.

Surely it’s entirely possible that the release clause is true but that multiple teams have triggered it. If that’s the case Olise and his agent are well suited to sit and let said teams offer him increasingly lucrative deals until the last moment of the window.

Greatwesternline Everything is relative, but he's pretty raw. I dont think he is quite yet in the category of big clubs falling over themselves.

I dont think he will be good enough to play in the Champions League put it that way. he is good, but is he that good?

I think Richards is a better player, and that Laurent is actually the bigger difference for this season compared to last, not Olise.


I've been saying exactly all that for months but have been ridiculed.


But it's true Laurent is the difference. Said it several times too.

There's several notable differences. Olise, Joao and Laurent on the playing side being the major parts of it.

Olise adding goals and assists to his game has been huge and why he's getting attention. Without those we win far fewer games.
Joao playing most games and scoring in most of them is huge and why we win games.
Laurent adding a whole new dimension to midfield and making us harder to beat has been huge.

Take away any one of those three and it's a very different story.

Football fans in black and white views shock.

The difference is that we now have partnerships all over the pitch, we have a balanced side that complements itself and works as a unit.

Yes Laurent has been important but it’s his partnership with Rinomhota that is bringing the best out of both of them. Gives a balanced base that protects defence and enables Olise etc to do their thing and support Joao.

Point is everyone is playing their part in a balanced team.

Unless of course Olise turned them all down, but yes I suspect your deduction is more accurate :lol:

I think if anyone had triggered a clause Sky would have told us all about it."

Oh did they know about a release clause?

Never heard them mention it.
